MET ADDITION: Invites for the May 6 Costume Institute Benefit are starting to arrive, and they feature a surprise high-wattage celebrity name — Beyoncé Knowles.

Beyoncé has been added to this year’s gala as honorary chair. While unconfirmed, it’s possible the entertainer could join cochairs Rooney Mara, Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, Lauren Santo Domingo and Vogue editor in chief and Condé Nast artistic director Anna Wintour on the receiving line.
